So do you leave this in place at all times or take it off like you would a Sat Nav for example?

No I have mine in all the time and have put the cable behind the dash so it out the way and leave plugged in all the time. When you switch off it detect it and turns itself off. However you could if you wish use it like your satnav and just unplug it and leave it in your glove box

well it is quite small and does not look like any satnav I can think of but beign very thin and only the size of a credit card I could clip it off the mount and just put it face down on the dash or somewhere like that. It is not plugged at the unit end but hard wired

I did that with my nanocom in the disco... didn't show half as much as that one but had everything I wanted to keep an eye on :D

Looks like a great bit of kit tho... congrats!

That is why I asked. We are not as posh as you North Londonshire types and our yobs would have it out in a flash without even knowing what it is.

Is it not possible to mount it somewhere where it looks like a fitted item rather tha an add on? (Thinking dash module or something similar). Looks like a smart bit of kit  :up

Yes entirely.

Could mount it anywhere, in fact I nearly mounted it in the roof lining near the rear view mirror but in the end when for he dash.
